Carole King... Tapestry..."You’ve Got a Friend"...a beautiful evening with my friend Wendy Allen to see the Carol King Musical - "Beautiful" at the National Theatre in Washington DC that was simply fantastic! This legendary, rather should I say, genius, singer/songwriter has written over 400 songs that have been sung by thousands and listened to by millions. You can’t get any better than that, can you?
It was a stellar evening of all her classics and the hits she co-wrote with her first husband Gerry Goffin. I’m thankful to have ended the year seeing such a great show coupled with excellent performances by the talented cast.
How many of us listened to the album "Tapestry" over and over again and know every word to every song? I bet millions...
BSoleille! The bright side of an American treasure in Carole King’s prolific songwriting career!
